The Global Internship Program is a unique program that gives students the opportunity to earn academic course credit while gaining practical internship experience in their field of interest.
Berkeley Summer Sessions works in coordination with European Study Abroad (EUSA) and Academic Internship Council (AIC) to provide students with comprehensive academic internship programs and support in various locations around the world. With decades of placement history and strong employer networks, EUSA and AIC bring expertise and experience to its internship operations.
Rather than undergoing a time consuming search on their own, our team works with students to find connections with firms that will support their career goals in various locations. We offer placement services in Dublin, Madrid, and Singapore which combine the benefits of our domestic internship program with international experience. In addition, participants will receive comprehensive support from Summer Sessions' professional staff that includes one-on-one career advising, interview preparation, resume review, prepared-to-work seminars, and other placement services.
Participation in an internship is supported by enrollment in a ten-week UC Berkeley online internship course, as well as a local culture course designed to acclimate participants to the city they will be interning at. Though the Bay Area site does not have a related culture course, we encourage participants interning at this location to take an additional course related to the field in which they are placed to help them further integrate their professional experience with their academic skills and goals.
Intern along the River Liffey in Ireland's capital, while learning about the history and culture of Ireland. Known as the Silicon Valley of Europe, Dublin has a lot to offer in the way of internships, and placements are available in a large range of industry sectors. As the center of Irish industry, the city has a very cosmopolitan and international workforce. Half the population is under the age of 30, and the city is considered to be very modern and outward looking. Although Dublin is a large city, it is easy to navigate and students find Dubliners to be very warm and welcoming. You will be able to take advantage of a wealth of resources at University College Dublin, where you will be living and taking your on-site Irish History course.
The Dublin Internship Program offers internships in almost any field. Once you have been admitted to the program, you will meet with our team to talk about your interests and background based on which we will find you an internship in Dublin. We can't promise to find you an internship at a specific firm or organization, but we do promise to find you an internship that corresponds to your specific interests and background.
